Co-Education Memories from Laura French

Laura, OH 1994-04, joined the Junior School five years after girls were admitted to study there

I attended Hymers from 1994 until I left to go to university in 2004. I studied medicine at the Hull York Medical School and after a period working in obstetrics and gynaecology, I am now a Consultant in Public Health Medicine in Leicester with an interest in sexual and reproductive health.

I loved my time at Hymers. As well as an incredible academic education, it also allowed me to develop and explore my passions for music and performing, something which I am grateful for to this day as a keen amateur musician.

Many of my happiest memories involve the incredible friends that I made during my time there, most of whom I am still in touch with and who form an important and much loved part of my life. I wish the next generation of Hymerians all the best for their time at the school and beyond; make the most of the opportunities it offers you and treasure your friendships. You won't regret it.

Laura French, OH 1994-2004
